Dean Strauss is a contestant from Survivor: Malaysian Islands.


Name (Age): Dean Strauss (25)
Tribe Designation: Akan
Current Residence: Payne County, OK
Occupation: Economics Consultant
Personal Claim to Fame: Landing a role at a high school theatre play. It was the first time I came out my shell and really started to get along with people.
Inspiration in Life: Aretha Franklin. That woman had to go through so much in her life and she overcame all of it. She is a Survivor and I aspire to be like her.
Hobbies: Acting, Dancing, Working Out
Pet Peeves: Sour losers and miscommunication.
3 Words to Describe You: Friendly, Positive, Selfless
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are the Most Like: I would say Ethan. What is better than to be the likeable guy that jury awards with the million because they like him. I will also not make moves if not necessary.
Reason to Being on Survivor: You should always put yourself through situations that are out of your comfort zone. Otherwise, you will not find out how strong of a person you are and you won't grow.

  • Dean has been a geeky kid without friends and then his life turned around thanks to one theatre plan. He is now running his charity "Help Children Grow" where he talks to children that are as he had been before the change.
